WorldCat.org] Search for books, music, videos, articles and more ...

Find what you want in a library near you with WorldCat, a global catalog of library collections.

WorldCat [OCLC - Home]: "WorldCat lets a wider audience discover items in your OPAC and find your online services when they follow links from results on popular Web search engines (like Google and Yahoo!), other partner sites or WorldCat.org. More than just a database of things libraries own, WorldCat is the foundation for an array of online services that help libraries manage those things and the processes behind them. By putting common workflows such as cataloging and resource sharing onto a collaborative network driven by WorldCat data, libraries make the most of their resources, staff and budget.

WorldCat is the world’s most comprehensive database of library materials. Updated at a rate of nearly one new record every 10 seconds, WorldCat contains more than 85 million bibliographic records and 1 billion holdings contributed by over 9,000 libraries around the world.

WorldCat.org is a platform that makes it easy for libraries, collectively and individually, to deliver their services to the network and build a unified, high-value consumer presence on the Web. WorldCat.org integrates library content and services with Web search engines, Internet booksellers, online bibliographies and commercial publishers. It also provides a permanent Web page dedicated solely to searching the world’s libraries and a search box that anyone can download to a blog or Web site

Sharing, Privacy and Trust in Our Networked World [OCLC - Membership Reports]: "The practice of using a social network to establish and enhance relationships based on some common ground—shared interests, related skills, or a common geographic location—is as old as human societies, but social networking has flourished due to the ease of connecting on the Web."
